BABA Mthethwa s neme­sis, Ram­phareng Les­lie Boshielo, ap­peared in the Se­cunda Mag­is­trate s Court on Thurs­day for the third time.

Mthethwa, the Se­sotho com­men­ta­tor on pay chan­nel Su­perS­port, was not there.

Boshielo is fac­ing at­tempted mur­der charges af­ter al­legedly fir­ing shots at Mthethwa s house in De­cem­ber last year, hit­ting his Lexus.

The Sa­sol em­ployee and Vaal Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy lec­turer stated in his af­fi­davit that Mthethwa was sleep­ing with his wife.

Boshielo said his wife ad­mit­ted to hav­ing a re­la­tion­ship with Mthethwa, and that he had for­given her.

The woman at the cen­tre of the tri­an­gle is known only as Mrs BV and was at Boshielo s side on Thurs­day.

When Boshielo ap­peared in court las month, the case was post­poned for fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Boshielo s at­tor­ney, Zakir Ra­sool, told Sun­day World that Mthethwa has been play­ing catand-mouse games with them.

For the case to be heard, we need his [Mthethwa s] as­sis­tance. He needs to sign and ac­knowl­edge cer­tain documents, but he al­ways has ex­cuses. He now says he is out of the coun­try. He is try­ing to frus­trate the process. We have also looked at set­tling this mat­ter out of court with him,” said Ra­sool.

He added that if Mthethwa didn t make an ef­fort to meet them be­fore May 9, when Boshielo must ap­pear again, he will ask the mag­is­trate to strike the case off the roll.

We can t have this mat­ter on the roll for more than six months. He laid the charges, so why is he play­ing games?” asked Ra­sool.

Mthethwa did not re­spond to Sun­day World queries.
